Step 4 – Documents

At this step, candidates are notified they are required to provide the following Security Checks:


  • Criminal Record Search
  • Child Abuse Registry Check
  • Adult Abuse Registry Check
  • Security Screening Application Form

All candidates are required to submit a satisfactory Criminal Record Search, Child Abuse Registry Check and Adult Abuse Registry Check. We request original documents or the proof of reasonable efforts of obtaining these documents. “Proof of reasonable efforts” can include:

  • receipt of purchase of the Criminal Record Check, Child Abuse Registry Check, and Adult Abuse Registry Check
  • copies of the application form to be submitted

These documents (or copies of receipts or application) are required prior to the facility tours. Should our office not receive this documentation, it can preclude you from interviewing any of the Correctional Centres.

A Criminal Record Search can be obtained at:

  • Commissionaires Office, 290 Burnell Street
  • Winnipeg Public Safety Building, Main Floor, 151 Princess Avenue,
  • Local law enforcement agency

Please note you will be required to pay a processing fee. At certain locations, it may take at least 10 business days to receive your Criminal Record Search. The Vulnerable Sector Search only applies to only those residing/have resided outside of Manitoba.

Both Child and Adult Abuse Registry Checks can be obtained through an online application or in person to Child and Family Services, 1st floor -777 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB. Please note that both checks can take eight – ten weeks to be processed and applicable fees will apply. Once received, you must immediately submit the originals to Human Resource Services.

The Security Screening Application form will be distributed to all candidates during the facility tour. Once candidates receive the form, they will be required to complete and submit the form (within five days of receipt). Candidates will undergo a Security Screening process that includes a series of relevant background checks and a Security Screening interview which will be determined at a later date.

For candidates that have completed a Security Screening Application form in a previous recruitment, you will be required to complete another form if it was submitted more than six months ago.

Please note that the above mentioned documents are to be submitted to Human Resource Services, 1130 – 405 Broadway, Winnipeg, MB R3C 3L6.

Failure to provide this documentation can preclude candidates from proceeding to the interview stage.
